Ragtag Daily Prompt: Carousel

GarGar sighed and put down his field glass. From what he could see, no one was going in or out of the city. The walls were unmanned; however, the gates were closed, no doubt bolted shut. They were waiting for him. This is a disaster waiting to happen. He mused.

He rode over to the siege equipment. There were the towers that would be pushed against the walls, from which his men could shoot missiles down onto the defenders, scaling ladders to allow others to climb the walls. Then there was the carousel with its thick ropes and giant hooks. Once the hooks were attached to the tops of the walls, teams of men would push the carousel around, thereby pulling down the walls one stone at a time.
